RadiumOne Redefines Social Messaging With the Second Generation of Its PingMe App

PingMe 2.0 Bridges Social Networking and Messaging for Friends Who Want to Share Messages, Pictures & Questions in Real-Time

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- RadiumOne today announced the launch of their second generation and redesigned messaging app, PingMe Messenger. PingMe 2.0 takes the best of version 1.0 and enhances it with a new UI and feature advancements that redefine social messaging. This latest version includes a social messaging layer that before now, has been missing from all other messaging apps on the market. PingMe 2.0 also includes an innovative question and answer feature that enables people to initiate a conversation with their friends and family by asking their burning questions, and posting responses within groups and across the entire PingMe community. With PingMe 2.0, people can discover and connect with new and interesting people that share their interests.

According to a recent report by Nielsen, time spent on social media in the U.S. across both personal computer and mobile devices grew 37 percent to reach 121 billion minutes in July 2012, up from 88 billion minutes in July 2011. Mobile devices are fueling these numbers, with consumers' time spent using social media mobile apps and mobile websites accounting for 63 percent of the year-over-year growth. Forty-six percent of social media users say they use their smartphones to access social media, and 16 percent say they use social media on a tablet.

PingMe is the first app that bridges the privacy of mobile messaging with the broadcasting of social apps. Now, people can ask questions and share their everyday interests and easily connect with other likeminded people in the PingMe community of over 3 million users. RadiumOne CEO Gurbaksh Chahal mentions, "PingMe 2.0 takes a distinctly social approach to messaging that has been missing from other apps and social networks. It is the first mobile app to offer true social messaging capabilities that empower people to communicate in the format they like the most -- whether it through sharing photos, sending texts, recording video and voice messages, or posting comments."

PingMe is also an ideal mobile platform for brands to engage directly with consumers in real-time through its question and polling features. New features in PingMe 2.0 include a completely redesigned and more intuitive user-interface, a customizable news feed and deep Facebook integration for broadcasting messages. The company has also added a social discovery component that allows people to reach new audiences. Here are some additional features included in PingMe 2.0:

  • Connect With Interesting People: Discover and connect with people that share your interests and have great opinions on the things you like most.
  • Get Instant Advice: Ask questions and receive instant feedback from your friends or other interested PingMe users.
  • Start Private or Public Conversations: Create groups like "Friends" or "Family" and start conversations with an individual group or the entire PingMe community.
  • See Your Friends on a Map: Want to know where your friends are at when you're messaging with them? Their location is now just a click away.
  • Message Individuals or Groups: Organize your contacts into groups to send messages to the people that matter most. Fantasy football trash talking just got a little more fun.
  • Receive Instant Notifications: Never miss a friend's comment. PingMe tells you when someone interacts with your message, even when it's closed.

To download and install PingMe, visit the iTunes App Store or Google Play and search "PingMe" or visit www.pingme.net.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
